    Gun Control Increases Violence

    The last thirty-five years of the most complete and accurate scientific criminological research shows that often, gun control increases violent crime, and it never reduces crime. Gun control laws cost thousands of lives each year, and endanger everyone, including those who choose not to own firearms.

    There are about 2.5 million defensive uses of firearms in the U.S. each year, almost always without shooting the attacker. Mere possession and display is almost always an adequate defense. (You won't learn this from the CFR controlled.... filtered, agenda driven Main Stream Media (MSM).

    Gun control shifts the balance of power to favor criminals (and bad governments) over ordinary citizens. This is especially evident in mass murder shooting rampages, which are facilitated by the imbalance of power created by gun control laws and business policies that prevent self-defense with firearms. Shooting rampages may last from several minutes to more than a half hour, due to the imbalance of power an armed attacker has over unarmed citizens.

    Gun control destroys the multiple crime control and deterrent effects of armed citizens. The crime control and deterrent effects of armed citizens equal or exceed those of the entire criminal justice system, including police, courts, and prisons, according to research by Professor Gary Kleck at Florida State University.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptCtNW5yI7c]Dr. Gary Kleck on Gun Control - YouTube[/ame]

    Gun control laws waste, squander, and misdirect limited criminal justice resources, including police, court, and prison resources, by targeting the wrong people. Gun control diverts attention away from real and effective crime control methods that have worked in the past and will work in the future.

    And gun control is used as a smokescreen by liberal, soft-on-crime politicians, celebrities, and other public figures, to cover up their soft-on-crime records, and to divert attention away from their failure to support real and effective crime control laws. Most news organizations are willing and eager accomplices. All a liberal politician must do to instantly get lots of free positive national news publicity, that cannot be bought at any price, is publicly call for more restrictive gun control laws.

    Widespread Private Firearms Ownership Reduces Violence

    Firearms are used at least five times more often for self-defense by ordinary citizens than they are misused in all crimes, suicides, and accidents combined. (You won't learn that in the CFR controlled... filtered, agenda driven Main Stream Media).

    Therefore, a complete and accurate cost-versus-benefits analysis, rather than a one-sided analysis, shows that widespread firearms ownership by ordinary nonviolent citizens provides a great net benefit to society, and greatly reduces the overall violence rate. Private firearms ownership should be strongly encouraged rather than discouraged or prohibited.

    Scientific research by Professor Gary Kleck found that defense with a firearm is significantly safer and more effective than any other method, including non-resistance.

    Gun control laws that target, restrict, punish, and harass ordinary law-abiding citizens, who have no criminal intent, are both counter-productive and immoral. The right to self-defense, which necessarily includes the right to own firearms, is the safest and most effective means of self-defense...

    You would think the gun nuts and NRA scum would have the common decency to STFU for a week or two.

    But they just post the same debunked fake science crap.

    Pathetic.

    Do these people not have children?

    You're the one that is pathetic and you haven't debunked anything! Just more ad hominem and straw man arguments.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. Prior to the handgun ban in the UK, gun crime was a rare occurance. After the ban, and despite having the tightest and most restrictive firearms legislation in Europe, we have the highest rate of gun crime in Europe, and it's still rising. Seriously, and I'm really not kidding, you stand more chance of being gunned down in London than you do in the former Yugoslavia, and they've got UN peace keepers on the ground.

    Disarm citizens and you create a criminal utopia.
